Expert Review

Located in an attractive residential neighborhood just a half-mile from Princes Street, this bed and breakfast offers exceptional value in a quaint and comfortable setting. Directly across the street lies Scotland’s purported oldest golf course, and while it has been reduced to a 36-hole “pitch and putt,” guests are encouraged to borrow a club and practice their swing on the 500-year-old links. At Elmview, guests can choose from five uniquely decorated rooms, each with a king-size bed, sleek bathroom with heated towel rack, personal safe, complimentary sherry, free Internet access, and welcome flowers. There is also a cozy sitting room with a well-stocked library, as well as a charming patio. The complimentary three-course breakfast is superb and includes a range of hot specialties, such as traditional Scottish “rumbledethumps” (cabbage, potatoes, and onions) and not-so-traditional huevos rancheros.
